Stem News

This is the latest we received from Stem school. It is also posted on their blog.

STEM Middle School would like to thank everyone for their interest in attending our school for the 2019-2020 school year.  To answer the most popular question we hear, there is no application process in order to be considered for STEM for those students who attend Dearborn Public Schools; instead, invitations will be sent out to all those 5th grade students in the district that are found to be eligible.  To be eligible students must have the following:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP.

 Our hope is to have invitations sent out to all eligible 5th grade students by the end of February.  From there, students who receive an invitation and indicate that they are interested in actually attending STEM in the fall, will be selected by lottery.  We will accept a final number of 60 students in to our 2019-2020 6th grade class.

If you live within the Dearborn Public Schools, and do not currently attend a Dearborn Public School, OR you are currently a 6th or 7th grader and would like to apply for a POSSIBLE empty slot, an application will be available on the STEM Middle School website (https://stem.dearbornschools.org/) under the tab “ADMISSIONS” starting in mid-February.   Invitations will be sent out to grade students that meet the below standards:

–       A Winter NWEA math score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA reading score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       A Winter NWEA science score in the 85th or higher percentile.

–       ADVANCED on the 2018 ELA and Math M-STEP

 Once again, thank you for your interest in STEM Middle School – a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School for Academic Excellence.

*The Social Studies tests and Math tests have been graded. Your child will bring a small paper showing the results of the Social Studies test, Your child will also bring a rubric attached to the math test to explain how it was graded.
